Princess Charlene: ‘My health is still fragile and I don’t want to rush things’

Princess Charlene looks ten years younger when she gets to do an event or appearance without her husband. Charlene was out in Monte Carlo on Tuesday, and her “date” for the event was her daughter, Princess Gabriella. Mother and daughter went to the Monte Carlo Fashion Week Fashion Awards, where Charlene presented an award. Charlene is patron of MCFW.

Charlene also posted a behind-the-scenes photo with Gabriella, writing: “I loved every moment preparing my Princess for her first official event. We’re looking forward to a great evening at the fashion awards.” Super-cute. I’m also reminded of the fact that Gabriella apparently cut her own bangs last year, and Charlene is probably trying to convince Gabriella to grow them out? Maybe not – the bangs are a lot thicker and longer than they used to be.

This is the happiest and best Charlene has looked in years. She was asked about her health by a local paper (Nice Matin), and she said: “My health is still fragile and I don’t want to rush things. It’s been a long, difficult, painful path. Today, I feel more serene. I’m very happy to be back home in Monaco.” As much as people say that she’s trapped and miserable and Albert is horrible, I still wonder what’s actually going on here. I feel like the truth of it is a lot weirder than we know.

    The little princess looks so happy to have her mother back with her.

    • Nicki says:

      I came here to say the same thing about how happy her daughter looks, and how close the two of them seem. Probably not a bad bet that she returned for the kids. Maybe when they’re grown, she can finally escape a bad marriage.

    • Well Wisher says:

      The little princess looks beautiful, and the dress, wow!!!

  2. Amy Bee says:

    The new marriage contract had been agreed and signed. So she’s back in Monaco and working.

  3. Zantasia says:

    That white blonde pixie haircut really suits her.

    • Joanna says:

      Yes! Looks so good

    • Suze says:

      Her hair looks so good! And I love the white blonde too, the color and cut make her features pop.

    • Julia K says:

      Came here to say the same; her haircut and color are very flattering. She looks as if she had her makeup done professionally, glad to see that she is invested in looking attractive.

    She looks so happy to be with her girl and is looking healthier than when she initially returned to Monaco. I know folks are doubtful about how Albert can keep her against her will but it is what other folks have said…her children are HIS property and she wants to be their mother so she remains in Monaco. I don’t doubt that she is struggling mentally and maybe she was struggling before she even married him. But he has contributed greatly to her problems and heartache. I hope she continues to recover and enjoys raising her children. I also hope that she finds something else to hold onto that brings her joy.

    I agree Kaiser – the truth has got to be even more than we know. On the one hand I know it’s none of my business but I’m the other hand I’m nosy and dying to know. I just hope she’s ok now no matter what happened.

  6. JRenee says:

    She looks happy.
    Every statement has a tag line about her being happy to be back. I’m sorry she’s protesting a bit much for me to believe she’s writing this without some type of duress…

    The glow she has here is beautiful and so is her daughter. So sweet to see.

    • Truthiness says:

      Charlene and Gabriella’s faces are 1000 times happier than last year, a picture is worth a thousand words. 2021 Gabriella thunder face was EPIC. Honking for Monaco content, at least now Charlene looks strong enough to handle a stiff wind.

  8. Jane says:

    I wonder where the truth is… as stated, people often talk about how horrible Albert is, and considering his past, I wouldn’t want to be in a romantic supposed-to-be-exclusive relationship with him. Just as often, people talk about the price he has to pay for her to be and stay as his wife.
    I’d say that I can believe both stories, that he is horrible and that she’s in and stays in for the money and lifestyle.
    In France, we also have often in the gossip news, the mother of one of his first children ( the previously hidden ones). She really hate Charlene and often speak about how awful, petty and mean Charlene is toward the others children and how she use her power to mistreat and humiliate them when Albert is not around to protect them. So I would not as easily believe the stories about Charles being a powerless prisoner in Monaco.

    • Smart&Messy says:

      After Meghan, I would not judge Charlene based on what Nicole spews about her in the press. Nicole sounds like a jealous and nasty woman in those interviews.

      Charlene using the word “serene” when it comes to her health and wellbeing sounds like mental health issues. I would not use that word if the subject of the conversation was my physical health.

  9. J. Ferber says:

    Yes, she looks healthy, happy and stunning without Albert. Albert, I believe, is the cause of all her health/mental problems. She is so delighted to be with her little girl. I wish her the very, very best. She should do more events without her albatross Albert. They wanted Kate to do more events without Will and it doesn’t work (with or without him). It works for Charlene. Do more of that, girl.

  10. Isabella says:

    That little girl really loves and needs her mother. And vice versa. It is sweet to see both of them smiling. I wish them well .

  11. Sans says:

    Just a feeling – and people here probably way know more than I do – but don’t think it is/was a physical condition but a mental and emotional one. She has looked depressed beyond measure for ages. The white blonde hair suits her so well. So she’s staying for the kids? Albert seems like a terrible husband (mainly due to his supposed philandering) though I’m sure he wooed her like crazy at the beginning.

    The love between mother & child is SO shiny!
